This wet weather has got us thinking about cosy indoor activities so we’ve gone ahead and booked another season of free Bikeminded films for you.  We’ll be returning to the snug little theatre under the Kensington Central Library for our winter programme, which includes a film about a mountain, couriers and a toilet, all with bicycles...
